    Great location by the beach. Only a 15 minute walk to the park. The staff was great and very helpful. They helped me find good tours to take. It was quiet and peaceful.

    Really nice owner, Carolina, and staff, especially Juan Pablo. Private room with ac and own bathroom was ideal. Good bar/communal area and hammocks. Just a few minutes walk from town which has its benefits in high season. Beach just 100m away, could do with cleaning. Easy access to pristine beaches elsewhere. Happy to recommend, Charles

    Not ‘in’ town but right on the beach. About 15 mins walk to centre of Bocas Town. The breakky was amazing and beds were comfy. The hostel had everything we needed

    A bit far from town (20 min walk from the water taxi base), but if you're looking for a more chilled out less party place then it's great. Nice relaxed atmosphere, you can hear the waves from the beach and the breakfast is great (makes it very good value for money because you get so much food). Staff are friendly and helpful.

    Very nice quiet hostel. I think the location of this hostel ends up being its downfall, and it’s mostly based on the perception of how far it is from town centre. Being 10 minutes from the centre, this hostel is quiet (we were the only ones there). We enjoyed staying here because all the staff were friendly and the room had air conditioning that was self-controlled. If you are looking to step away from the noise of Bocas downtown, this works well.

    Staff was awesome! Pictures make it seem a little cleaner than it is, overall a quiet place to relax. WiFi doesn’t work well in rooms unfortunately

    The far distance to Bocas town seemed nice at the time of booking due to its proximity to the beach but the beach itself is not nice at all. The room was basic with wet spots on the walls and it looked moldy. The place seemed quite empty and is not great for socializing with others. Too bad, as it has potential and could be very nice with some efforts.

    This hostel was difficult to review due to a couple of things. Firstly it ISNT 10 minutes from town it's about a 20 to 25 minute walk. We were there for 4 nights and our room got cleaned the LAST day before we left (garbage wasn't removed, no new toilette paper, NOTHING). It said there was hot water we never had hot water. It also said that coffee was also always available it wasn't either. Our lockbox in our room didn't work either. I don't know if it was just our room or what...

    The place is dirty, badly maintained and employees indifferent. Planks at the shower's side are out, so water runs into the toilet. It's moldy and slippery. Kitchen: Grease stains, rust, and ants on rags with food rests. In the mornings we found a dead mouse and catfood across the kitchen floor (not cleaned up the eve before), always with an employee within metres watching YouTube. Old reviews seem written under a different management, one with a restaurant, breakfast and engaged employees.
